Run for the Hills

Around 80 peo­ple reg­is­ter for Meni­hek Nordic Ski Club event

The Aurora (Labrador City) - - Front Page - CON­TRIB­UTED

On a crisp fall day with a dust­ing of new snow on the ground, Meni­hek Nordic hosted the 13th an­nual Run for the Hills.

Close to 80 peo­ple reg­is­tered for the event, in­clud­ing par­tic­i­pants from Que­bec, Churchill Falls and the rest from Labrador West.

There was great ex­cite­ment in the air at the start line at 1 p.m. It was hard to hold the kids back, and then they were off and run­ning.

The trail was ex­cel­lent, the golden fall colours and the fall­ing leaves cov­er­ing the new snow on the trail mak­ing it ex­cep­tion­ally pretty. Adults did 6.5 kilo­me­tre runs, teenage boys and girls did the 3km event, youth up to 12 did 2km and recre­ational run­ners did the 2km or 3km.

A so­cial was held after at the chalet with healthy foods and bev­er­ages. Prize draws were held and medals were pre­sented to all youth.

Thank you to all vol­un­teers and or­ga­ni­za­tions, es­pe­cially the Labrador West Search and Res­cue who were out in full force, front and cen­tre show­cas­ing their new equip­ment, and the Ham Ra­dio Club for the great sup­port, the or­ga­niz­ing com­mit­tee and spon­sors for an­other great com­mu­nity event hosted by Meni­hek Nordic Ski Club.
